Manchester United legend Louis Saha has sounded out Lyon’s Moussa Dembele as a possible signing for the club.

The former United striker is confident the player will be a good signing for the club if we can sign him.

The 24-year-old came off the bench to score a brace in his side’s 3-1 win against Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals, and Saha says he could offer a physical presence up front for United.

“I think Moussa Dembele could be an interesting signing for Manchester United,” the Frenchman said.

“I know from my time at Fulham that Dembele is physically strong and he would be a very good target man.

“He would be able to hold up the play and bring wide players into the game as an effective plan B against some opposition.”
